Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Ha! A Phish quote I get...

word JOTS!

bluedevil sounds like the dukey reactionary he is at heart. SO, you like "Perfectly Offensive" noodling? i mean, i didn't think of BD as an "on the edge" sort of guy.

BD, you would have been chilling at the Erykha Badu set for sure bro, right after MGMT!

FUNNY, in the phish world, the people were, as usualy, bitching that they don't "noodle"/jam ENOUGH!

anyway, this is a very closed-minded little thread,

Saw MGMT for the second time this past week (down in Big Sur) and, yet again, I was pretty fuckin' bored - but they had improved and I like the fact that they are exposing the kiddies to their influences.

Love Badu and love the stuff she's been doing w/ MMJ.

I like Trey but I thought that was a pretty damn funny quote. Then again, I still think his best work is by far and away with Oysterhead.

I don't hate Phish; I just don't get them. Believe it if you need it....

The show I wish I'd seen was Warren sitting in with The Meters at the Independent.

Has Arcade Fire played yet? They always deliver on the big stage.

I wasnt accusing YOU of hating Phish. I'm just talking some people in general. Critics I could see hating them but I don't get how someone who likes The Grateful Dead could hate them. Not enjoy listening to them? That's different

I was not worried about that. I was responding more to He Who Loves Sun Ra and P-Funk (as do I).

I have seen Phish and, for me, it felt like Up With People on Patchouli - that nauseous, tired feeling of coming on to shrooms (so I've read) without the payoff. However, to be fair, people tell me that I saw them right as they were burned out on their first mega go-round and that it was time for them to take a break. I saw Oysterhead and thoroughly enjoyed myself, but that had far more to do with Stewart Copeland drumming than anything else. Also, I like some of those tunes (the song about Dr. John C. Lilly in particular) and Trey is an extremely nice, funy, smart guy. I detected none of the "rock star" ego about him and he could not have been a nicer guy. I just don't get Phish as it seems like a lot of pointless noodling going nowhere BUT I don't listen to them enough to truly opine. I still think the quote is funny (and I'm sure the writer wears too skinny jeans and fancies himself a Brooklyn hipster in the Haight).

I first heard them when Picture of Nectar came out and to me it was always cool to hear a band where the instruments sounded real you know? I saw them two or three times, Red Rocks 93 and 94, the 93 supposedly a legendary show. As was mentioned about the emotional void - hell yeah they have a HUGE emotional void to me. I feel nothing special, no connection at all BUT 3 to 4 hour show that was full of entertainment and musicianship, It was a definitely something worthy of respect.And I was entertained. I have a couple of their live releases that I play from time to time but not that often.I'm not as keen on their long ass jams although there are some ones I do like. I enjoy some of their quirky stuff like Contact and Slave to the Traffic Light.What the hell? I LIKE humor in music. Thats one reason I love Ween so much. And the crowd that follows the - to me it's worse than the lot rats at Dead shows, with non of the cool people

I am really enjoying these vimeo clips He Lives!
I notice that there were two stages at opposite ends of the field – since they were the only band performing at this landmark show (the first concert at Watkins Glen since Summer Jam 1973) – I wonder if that was so they could switch stages depending upon the direction the sun was shining?! Great stuff, professionally filmed. Thanks
